    I just spent $424 getting my lawn tractor up to snuff. It has been stored in the shed for the last few years. Damp and occasional mice.

    I have decided to bite the bullet and just give the engine away, and would prefer it be to someone here on HBA. Then I could move the lawn tractor back into the garage.

    All you have to do is pick it up in person, or arrange your own shipping. Shipping weight is about 300 pounds (what it says on the crate).

    I will even throw in a set of hydraulic disk brakes (can't remember who made them---will have to look that up) that will fit on the aluminum Azusa wheels.

    I can help load if you have a ramp. Or 3 helpers! Otherwise it would take a hydraulic tail gate

    Yeah, but you can have it. I don't have a project for it and I really need a 2 seater anyway or my family will probably not be happy.

    Pincraze was the first to respond, so if he gets here he can have it.

    The weight is about 300 pounds.

    I am retired now. A couple of appointments next week, and church tomorrow morning, but otherwise any time. Just let me know when you will be here so I will make sure I'm home. Occasionally do errands around town.

    I'm located right on 423 just about a mile south of the Marion Centre Mall. Address 1983. Blue house on west side of road.

    Is the engine in a wooden crate or something else? The engine itself weighs around 120 and I can manage that. My plan was to take the crate apart to put in my car.

    Ok, if you need help loading it I would be happy to meet up somewhere tomorrow, and go up with you but I can't do it today. I'm about 25 min west of Columbus.
